A - Beautiful clear, dark amber. Thick, creamy head that stays a reasonable amount of time and leaves a good amount of soft, thick lacing.

S - No discernible specific notes in the smell. Light, a little hoppy. Maybe a touch of fruity scent.

T - Kind of generic tasting. Good, but nothing unusual or unique. A little sour, but a fruity sour, not a spoiled sour.

M - Very clean, light feel. No oiliness, no real bitter aftertaste (just a nice hop.)

Wish I could offer a more interesting perspective or review, but all I can say it it's just a pleasant, easy drinking ale that's not spectacular, but nothing to complain about either.
I'd willingly have another, and that's good for me.

550ml. Pours a slightly opaque, pale amber, orange colour with an effervescent white head which quickly dissipated leaving a trace of lace. Gentle caramel malt aroma with some citrus. Underlying light sweetness, tangy bitterness in the middle with a very long, mildly bitter finish. Quite dry, creamy texture, medium to full body. Not a beer I would rave about but decent enough in its own way.
